  • We have a kit to control kitchen appliances based on temperature (but could be used with any voltage/resistance sensor). It's Arduino-compatible and completely open source: http://lowereastkitchen.com.

  • I agree completely here. What is with no heatsink on the SSR? This is super dangerous. Something like 10% of SSRs fail in the on state, and these are designed to fail at the "rated" current (8A).

  • Construction is a bit more difficult than I expected. The self-tapping screws must be really soft because I keep stripping the drive slot. To anyone trying to follow the directions, I recommend using as many washers as possible, because my bracket does not tilt as the pan head (from step three) gets in the way of the motion (in step four). Will try again and see.

No public wish lists :(
